Portia De Rossi Finally Broke Her Silence On The Ellen Scandal!: Just last week, we saw a controversy stir up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that Ellen and her executives are rude to the lower waged employees.
That is to say, recently, Ellen’s wife, Portia De Rossi, broke her silence over this scandal and supported Ellen. Provided that, let us get into the details of why and how Portia showed her support to Ellen.
Portia De Rossi has given her first public statement after Ellen DeGeneres and her employees’ debacle. In the statement, Portia came into the support of her wife of 12 years, Ellen. She took Instagram to tell the audience that she stands with Ellen. She said:
“To all our fans… we see you. Thank you for your support. #stopbotattacks #IStandByEllen.”
However, it wasn’t clear over what Portia meant by ‘stop bot attacks,’ but this statement comes after Warner Bros held an internal investigation when former employees spilt the details about the irrational behaviour of their superior employees.
Warner Bros Investigates
The Ellen debacle started after a few former employees told via Buzzfeed that they were treated badly. Some either left because of racist slurs or due to constant bullying.
After that, when Warner Bros investigated, people started blaming Ellen for not being considerate about her employees. Provided that, Ellen sent out a memo acknowledging everything, and agree that nobody wants to be bullied or called out upon (indicating her struggles of being an openly gay influencer).
“On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness, no one would ever raise their voice and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something’s changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.”
Considering Ellen’s previous behaviour with several guests on TES, this complaint became the last straw. Not a long ago, comedian Kevin Porter branded Ellen by tweeting that she’s notoriously one of the meanest people alive.
Another TV writer, Ben Simeon wrote in a thread:
“A new staff member was told, every day she picks up on someone different to hate. It’s not your fault, just suck it up for a day, and she’ll be mean to someone else the next day. They didn’t believe it, but it ended up being entirely true.”
